Welcome Back Friends,
I love to celebrate birthdays! Mine, of course, LOL, and family and friends. When I received my Little Blue Button Stamp to work with I knew I wanted to create a masculine gift box, that later could be used as a stash box.
I pulled a wooden cigar box from my stash that has a suede top and black graphics. I began by coloring my cupcake with Tim Holtz's Distress Oxide Ink in colors Old Paper and Walnut Stain. I fussy cut the cup cake taking care to cut a part the frosting as I wanted to pop dot it for added dimension. I die cut cogs and gears from Tim Holtz, and embossed then using, Seth Apter's Baked Texture, in Vintage Bees Wax, and bronze. I die cut Happy Birthday and embossed with Ultra Thick Black embossing powder.
I pulled out a few steampunk metallic buttons I had in my stash and added some here and there to tie in the metal corners on the box.
I finished the inside with pattern paper, and birthday sentiment and a stamped top hat, to tie in the steampunk vibe.
I hope you enjoyed my project for Jo's Scrap Shack FunDay Friday Challenge Blog.
